Dragon Wedding Flutes by DragonsAndBeasties Dragon Wedding Flutes by DragonsAndBeasties
These two were made to go with this topper:

and a close up of just the dragons:


Gotta say, making flutes wasn't really that fun... maybe if I had straight stemmed glasses to work with it may have gone better, but these dragons were fighting gravity on those coned shape stems. I actually failed my first attempt at these, which REALLY pissed me off. I had even done a test set before I started the actual project to get an idea of how to do it! I stormed out of the studio and didn't return for a day or two because I was so disgusted with my failure. It is rare I can't figure a sculpture out, but THIS one got me. Even when I went back to the studio I shunned the project until I'd finished all my other projects, and it was the last one left. I had to scrap the first dragons and start over. Now that it is done, I am pretty happy with it, but I do not want to make flutes ever again :X

Commissions are currently closed, but pricing can be found here: [link] for future reference

Dragons hand-sculpted from Premo Sculpey clay, flutes purchased from Michaels

QUESTIONS???
Please visit my FAQ page [link] before asking questions about techniques and materials. Just about every question I get is covered there. Iím not trying to be rude, I just get tired of answering the same questions over and over ^^;

I was browsing through my favorites and found this again. I still get the same feeling I got when I first saw it. I just absolutely love these <3

I kinda find it funny that no one has asked this question:
Are they REAL, musical flutes? Or is there another definition of flute? XD

It always amazes me each new commission you do. You really do make the cutest dragons in all of creation.

I think these turned out LOVELY. I'm sure it was incredibly frustrating, but it was WORTH IT. I bet the commissioner will love them, congratulations on getting over a difficult project!

I think they're lovely! Maybe you'll figure out an easier way to do them in the future and give it a shot again.

awww... It sucks that you wouldn't want to make them again, but if it was that frustrating trying to figure it out, I don't blame you
but these are absolutely amazing!!
excellent work
